    I didn't make the last one, but it looks like everyone had a great time.

    I was going to offer to arrange the party or at l;east help this year since Im sitting around recovering from surgery anyway but I may have to get cut again. I was going to check into the Wellington in Arlington Hts. They are a banquet hall and have great food and drinks. I could call them and see what they could offer but I cant commit to putting much effort into this thing.

    Wally, shoot me an email when you get a chance with the number of people from last year and the price and Ill at least call and see if I can get a price. I work for the police dept. in Arlington Hts. and we have all our parties, etc. there so I may get a deal. They have some of the best prime rib around.

    How about sometime in January when things have settled down from the Holidays??

    Maybe 2nd or 3rd weekend after New Years??

    Lets get some dialogue goin'.

    P.S. Hey Wally-- I would be happy to assist in planning the whole gig. Let me know. I might even be able to get the band I do sound for to play if the place is big enough.

    I'm in! Wally did a great job with D&B's last year. Like Wally my only complaint about D&B's was the food. Will D&B's rent the space and let us order off of the menu? If not it sounds like Intolerant1 has a nice place. I'm up for anything!

    I have a bunch of Freeze Frame videos I can bring. November, January or February would be great. The only conflicts would be the Key West races and the Miami boat show. If we open the event up to non-OSO members to help promote OSO we may be able to get Jeffery and Steve to come up with some door prizes. Just an idea.


    BTW, If anyone is interested we have the Pirates Ball get together this weekend at Hammond.

    I canít believe they want to operate again! Good luck and get well soon.

    November is to close now as it would be hard for me to get a ticket and don't forget we have Thnanksgiving in there, so I will be in Cali for the last week of the month. December is touch as everyone is getting ready for the holidays. I could definatly be in for later in January or Feb.

    Let me know. I can also bring some stuff to raffle off to raise some money

    Put your best foot forward!
